Title: FTT0102
Post by: Krys TOFF on May 05, 2008, 09:28:55 AM
2nd race will be with a fast car, I plan to alternate fast and slow cars in the competition.
And we will have our 1st guest track designer for this track : Mark L. Rivers. ;)

Mmmm, is this comment for Duplode's time at FTT0101 track instead of FTT0102 topic ? :D

More info about 2nd track that will start tonight : car chosen is Porsche 962 and track design should make the race quite fluent and enjoyable (I just tested it once to test and validate the track).
Track itself is designed by Mark, but additionnal scenery was really poor so I completed it. ;D

Krys is right, the scenery was really poor! Effectively, I designed the track in about 20-30 minutes and I send him it immediately, sure to have realized a very good track for this 2nd NORH race... So I... missed some "decorative" elements...  Even if... I think that speed and, above all, adrenaline will be so high that drivers will see almost only the road and the chronometer... ;)
Anyway I think that a dazzling point will be sure just after the last tunnel, where drivers will have to reduce drastically their speed having to countersteer trying to find, as in a real race, the right trajectory to insert the car in the short uphill, finding the right angle to make a right slide in acceleration...   :)   But even the final will be really fine...   ;)

Track is ready for you all to race. I hope you'll enjoy the scenery addition Mark. ;)

Just see the track with TB: great scenery Krys!  :)
And now, I'm going to put my helmet....   8)

Oh, Btw: starting from this track, the names of my tracks will be a tribute to my favourite songs ever.
So... this track is called "New Languages"...  ;)

Z83, FTT0101, Naval, Z84, FTT0102.... Finding Duplode it's becoming a constant for me while I try to reach the first place...  ;)   As I had predicted last year, Duplode is on the road to be an absolute starring of this circus... and he's already onward on that road... :)

Mark is the 1st below 1 minute. Who will react ?

"New Language" is a fluent and engaging (and hard!) track, interesting to drive on. It makes me willing to integrate more hill edges into my future non-IRC designs. I intend to meet you guys there again in a while.

And Mark: If you look forward and see me, that's because I look upwards and see you...

Krys, a question about recording... my latest DOSBox video has two possible minor imperfections: first, I forgot to erase and rewrite my name when prompted at the "Evaluation" screen, inserting my nick on the scoreboard by pressing Enter straight away. Second, I recorded some additional footage of me saving the replay (~5-6 second). Do any of those compromise the validity of my video or am I being overzealous? It's just I don't want to risk publishing an invalid time...
Title: Re: FTT0102
Post by: Krys TOFF on May 17, 2008, 11:05:51 PM
am I being overzealous?
You are ! ;D :D
Al long as full race + name insertion in scoreboard is there, I don't care if there is anything else before or after.
But don't send me 15 minutes videos with 10 missed attempts or my mailbox will explode ! ;D

Wow, great time, Duplode! And now the thing begins to become really interesting...  Happy to have some time this afternoon... ;)

Post by: Mark L. Rivers on May 18, 2008, 03:51:42 PM

I confirm, great time, Duplode. OK, stop here for me today, "only" 1 second left, but I knew better the track and next time I'll try to come back on the first provisional time...  ;)
Title: Re: FTT0102
Post by: Duplode on May 26, 2008, 01:58:56 AM
I was about to post something on the lines of "Hey, one week left and only three pipsqueaks?", but I hadn't seen Chulk's entry yet... ;D
Anyway, I had a few very casual attempts over the last week, but with little effect: minor deviations from your planned line can easily cost 2-3 seconds here...
Title: Re: FTT0102
Post by: Mark L. Rivers on May 26, 2008, 08:17:33 AM

Effectively, FTT0102 is really a race when you have to drive with great ability from the start to the end if you want to make a good trial, and your current result, Duplode, seems really strong...   
Anyway, last week... I have to find at least two sessions to try... Another win for you could be dangerous...  ;)
Title: Re: FTT0102
Post by: Chulk on May 26, 2008, 05:02:46 PM
There are 3 key places in this track. The beggining can cost 2-3 secs if you cut too much to the right. The bridge-chicane-tunnel-chicane-left corner can cost much more if you jump off the bridge with the wrong angle. The final part is tricky and a single mistake can ruin your whole race, and that really hurts. That's what happened to me with Ftt0101, I had a potential winning time but an unexpected Magic Carpet before last curve cost me a lot...  :'(

Yes, beware! I'll have time to race again on Saturday afternoon after I play football with some friends.

@ Duplode: Gotcha!

My class enden earlier than I expected so I had a 15 min session. Now, I'm leading by 0:00.10 on you. Now, I have to study so my last update will be Saturday afternoon after football.
Let's see how everything ends and maybe Mark can join the party too.

Last update from me before football (woke up earlier than I thought...) See you all later!

1 day remaining and only 4 pipsqueaks joined.. :-\

...the SDR core members... :-\ too bad lots of possible pipsqueaks have computer/config problems (Darkie, Zak, BJ...). CTG at least might join us? :)

Anyway, I have an update before the final shots as well. While doing this lap I wasted in excess of one hour of attempts due to a trivial strategic mistake I instantly spotted by watching my 57.60 lap, and then five minutes later I found a better time...

Post by: Mark L. Rivers on June 01, 2008, 07:06:33 PM

It could be easy hide me behind SOG engagements saying that I had not enough time to race. But the truth is that I never found the right feeling with this track... Congratulations for Duplode and Chulk, very fast time!
About the season, thinking that next track will be raced with a slow car, well, it seems to be very hard for me this year... Let's see...
Title: Re: FTT0102
Post by: Krys TOFF on June 01, 2008, 08:37:48 PM
Website is updated, with results, stats, downloads, news and so on already updated.
Congrats to Duplode for a 2nd win in a row.
Low number of pipsqueaks means less points earned compared to previous race. So those who missed this race can still join next one and catch the leaders. :)

Not so slow car, it is Porsche Carrera 4. ;)

Well, this victory is very important to my pretensions here, specially because under normal conditions I'm usually beaten by my rivals on serious IMSA challenges, and there's only one Jaguar track remaining... :)

Yes, congrats! You won a track you're not "supposed" to win... something like winning the away match in a cup. Anyway, too bad I didn't have time to improve further (I had a sprained ankle while playing football on Saturday and lost the time I had to race after it by putting ice in it...)

Ouch... :-\ It's a blessing I never had any sort of sporting injuries (other than a dislocated shoulder once, but that particular issue is rather commonplace to me...) - not that I would be missed by some team anyway! :D
